  • I LOVE THIS PLACE. If you love plants and gardening, you will not be disappointed. By day three of my trip in London, this was my favorite place. It's not very big but feels big and spent around 3 hours there. They have free guides packed with information. Chelsea is a non-profit and I think the price of the ticket is really fair, but bought some souvenirs in hopes of helping them keep up the good work.
  • I hadn't expected much but this was so interesting. Especially the clothes lines with squares of material hanging up and the associated plants growing beneath it like hemp, Bamboo, cotton, flax etc. I also enjoyed seeing the plants that made the drugs that cure cancer and other illnesses. Then to top it all, the cafe had great coffee, cakes and champagne! A good way to spend a sunny day. I will deffinately visit again.
  • Tranquil oasis in the heart of London. Wonderful place to meet with friends, plenty of seating to enjoy the garden. Information board on the use of plants in medicine, everyday life and commercial use. Tours offered at no extra cost. Cafeteria with a lovely selection of food and drink with the ability to make a reservation and would advise to do so for lunchtime. Particularly friday/Saturday. Gift shop with a good selection of gifts and cards, seeds and plants. The entrance is like a gateway to a secret garden.
  • Hidden gem. Second time I've been in 3 weeks. Excellent, free guided - thank you Joanna - informative and entertaining. Will definitely go again.
  • Excellent, kind of secluded garden. We enjoyed one of the guided tours on a beautiful sunny day, then indulged at the local cafe.

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
